About the Survey
This Europe-wide survey was conducted in 11 EU countries: Germany, France, Italy, UK, Spain, Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Switzerland, from 28 November to 14 December 2016.
The purpose was to measure the evolution of consumers’ perception and usage of glass packaging since a similar study was undertaken in 2014. Overall, 17,377 Europeans were surveyed.
The survey included a first sample size of 13,054 Europeans between 25-65 years old, with a focus on women (75% of surveyed consumers). All participants are (co)responsible for household grocery shopping. The second sample size included 4,323 Europeans between 16-24 years old.

About Friends of Glass
Friends of Glass started in 2008 as an awareness campaign for glass packaging. It was created by FEVE, the European Container Glass Federation, an international not-for-profit association representing glass packaging for food and drink, flacons for perfumery, pharmacy and cosmetics and glass tableware makers. Friends of Glass unites a community of people from different countries in Europe and beyond who are convinced that glass is an ideal packaging material because of its unique environmental, economic and family-friendly benefits. Individuals, national organizations, agencies and companies that believe in the sustainability credentials of glass are also proud members of the community.
FEVE, the European Container Glass Federation, is the association of European manufacturers of glass packaging containers and machine-made glass tableware. The federation represents the glass container industry at an international and European level, serving as a forum for examining common questions. FEVE maintains a dialogue with the European institutions and agencies on environmental, trade and other important issues relevant to the industry. The federation promotes glass packaging and glass recycling, complementing the activities of the glass industry at a national level.
